Description

With the current political climate, frequency of school shootings, and rising concern for students' mental health, schools are desperate for ideas on how to teach students to be kind. In this book, educators can find guidance on how different education professionals have implemented The Secret Kindness Agents Project, having tweaked it for their unique contexts, from preschool through university levels. Administrators and other school professionals will also find research outlining how The Secret Kindness Agents project impacted twenty-three edeucators, their students, and their contexts, as well as research that underscores the need for kindness education in general. The Secret Kindness Agents project has been implemented in over 500 schools around the world; from preschool through university level; in public, private, and homeschool settings; and in rural, urban, and suburban settings. It is all over the United States, three provinces in Canada, in Cameroon, Kenya, Australia, Fiji, and the Philippines. The project has been highlighted by Teaching Tolerance Magazine, the Hallmark Channel, and Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation and is the focus of the author's TEDX Talk and her first book, The Secret Kindness Agents: How Small Acts of Kindness Really Can Change the World.
